The Creative Arts/Worship Staffer is called to oversee and implement the overall plan for worship at Rejoice! Community Church. According to our Rejoice! value, worship will be God-directed, Christ-inspired, Holy Spirit led, and life transforming. S/he will communicate a vision and direction that will inspire and lead the congregation to participate in genuine worship – both in a corporate gathering and in a personal lifestyle of worship.

• Bring worship leaders and the congregation into active worship on a weekly basis rather than putting on a performance and entertaining a crowd.
• Build, equip, support and care for vocal and instrumental teams.
• Train and deploy musicians for making music in the mission field.
• Seek out new music and stay focused on new worship trends to keep worship edgy and culturally relevant while also incorporating ancient-future elements.
• Administrate rehearsals and schedules for instrumental and praise teams.

• Creatively incorporate multi-media, technology, and other methods into worship celebrations (i.e.: video, images, symbols, signing, testimonies, Spiritual direction exercises…)
• Oversee and equip a drama team.
• Oversee and equip a video/dvd team.
• Oversee creation/transportation of video/dvd for local cable channel.
• Oversee and equip a production and sound team.
• Make desired lighting, stage and worship center needs known to appropriate teams before the Sunday service.
• Oversee and equip worship computerization team, which includes graphics and PowerPoint/Media Shout.

The Creative Process:
• Produce the weekly worship service in creative and engaging ways to lead the church in God-directed, Christ-inspired, Holy Spirit led, and life transforming worship. From dreaming the design to creating the elements and making the handoff to the appropriate teams for implementation, creates a synergistic worship flow that supports and enhances the theme of the worship celebration.
• Spiritually lead and cultivate teams under your direction as small group communities.

• Oversee the administrative duties of the creative arts/worship ministry (CCLI and CVLI upkeep, music resource maintenance, storage of worship supplies, etc.)
• Prepare and oversee an annual creative arts/worship budget. Collaborate with Business Administrator.
• Assist with all aspects of services (prayer, communion, baptism) as needed.
• Establish and maintain a worship evaluation process.
• Develop and maintain current job descriptions for every ministry area within Creative Arts/Worship ministry.

Note: The above duties are not intended to be an all-inclusive list. The ministry at Rejoice! is a team ministry. Therefore, additional duties may be assigned from time to time as emergencies, growth, and other situations dictate.
